Kanye West: Shocking moments from Yeezy Season 3 and The Life Of Pablo album launch

Any event hosted by Kanye West is unlikely to go down without a few theatrics and he certainly delivered the shock factor at the launch of two new ventures at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The rapper showed off his Yeezy Season Three collection and debuted his seventh solo album, The Life Of Pablo, on Thursday (11 February) in front of an audience of 18,000, which included his family and a host of celebrity friends.

It was a momentous night for West, 38, as he unveiled his third fashion collection and played his long-awaited album in full for the first time publicly. The Grammy-winning rapper had the full support of his wife Kim Kardashian who brought along their two-year-old daughter North, as well as her sisters Khloe and Kourtney. Joining the group and modelling designs from the Yeezy collection were Kim’s extended family, Kendall, Kylie, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, as well as Khloe’s estranged husband Lamar Odom, who made his first public appearance since falling into a coma in October 2015.

Although it is yet to be released, fans were finally able to hear songs from the album, which includes features from the likes of Rihanna, Frank Ocean, Chance The Rapper, Young Thug, Kid Cudi and Sia.

In true Kanye-fashion, the launch was not short of unexpected moments. So for those who missed the live stream on music service Tidal, IBTimes UK rounds up the wildest antics from the night.

Lyrics about Taylor Swift

There is, ahem, bad blood between Taylor Swift and Kanye again. The pair already had a strained history after he interrupted the singer’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009, so his latest lyrics about the pop star have naturally not gone down too well. On the track Famous, West raps: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”

Swift’s fans responded in outrage and the Blank Space singer’s brother Austin Swift posted a video on Instagram of himself throwing West’s Yeezy Boost trainers in the bin, with the caption: “Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.” Her close friend, model Gigi Hadid, also felt the need to defend her decision to attend the event, tweeting: “My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty.”

It was initially claimed that West did obtain permission from Swift to mention her in the song, but a rep for the singer has slammed the rapper’s “misogynistic lyrics. In a statement released to the Mail Online, the publicist said: "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single Famous on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous’.”

Strict rules for models

Modelling for West’s fashion show is, clearly, like no other catwalk. The rapper set a strict list of requirements for the models – and they are on the extreme end of the spectrum. Demands included no smiling, no eye contact, do not make movements at the same time, do not act cool and do not break the rules.

Video game featuring his late mother Donda

West admitted to the audience that his idea of a video game based on his late mother Donda West was laughed at by tech experts in San Francisco but, of course, he went ahead with it anyway. Explaining it to the audience, West said: “The idea of the game is my mum travelling through the gates of heaven. That’s not easy to do, man.

"I go out to meet with everybody in San Fran, and they’ll diss the f**k out of me. And I’ll be like, 'I wanna make a game’, and they’ll be like, 'F**k you’. That was hard to do, bro.” Needless to say, the bizarre idea has raised some eyebrows.

Naomi Campbell walks the catwalk

Catwalk queen Naomi Campbell made a surprise appearance on the runway wearing a black jumpsuit and floor-length fur coat, showing the young models how it’s done.

Young Thug falls asleep on catwalk

Perhaps breaking one of West’s many rules, a meme of Young Thug appearing to fall asleep on the catwalk has gone viral. The rapper, who also features on the new album, modelled the Yeezy Three collection, but it seems the lengthy event kept him up past his bedtime.

La loi sur la lutte contre la corruption le 23 mars en conseil des ministres

Le projet de loi sur la lutte contre la corruption et la transparence de la vie économique sera transmis la semaine prochaine au Conseil d'Etat. L'objectif est de présenter le texte le 23 mars en conseil des ministres. Il prévoit notamment la création d'une agence de lutte contre la corruption qui surveillera les pratiques des entreprises et s'assurera de l'efficacité de leurs dispositifs de prévention. Il instaurera une nouvelle procédure de “plaider coupable” pour les entreprises accusées, qui, sur le modèle existant déjà aux Etats-unis, pourront choisir d'acquitter des amendes pour éviter des poursuites pénales. Cette loi doit aussi créer un statut pour les lanceurs d'alerte et un registre obligatoire des lobbyistes.

Partie financière de “noe”

Elle doit permettre le lancement d'une réforme du régime des sanctions dans le droit boursier, alors que le Conseil constitutionnel a demandé l'an dernier au gouvernement d'interdire le cumul de poursuites et de sanctions administratives et pénales. Selon des informations de presse, l'idée retenue est celle d'une concertation entre l'Autorité des marchés financiers et le parquet national financier sur la répartition des dossiers. La loi Sapin 2 reprendra d'autre part la partie financière du projet “noe” (nouvelles opportunités économiques) que le ministre de l'Economie Emmanuel Macron a renoncé à présenter, notamment des mesures pour faciliter le financement des entreprises de croissance. Le texte a été baptisé “projet de loi Sapin 2”, le car Michel Sapin a porté une loi sur les mêmes sujets lors de son précédent passage à Bercy en 1993….
